Audi, Kia & Genesis announce new vehicles ready for Apple's CarPlay
Several automakers have announced new CarPlay-ready vehicles in anticipation of this week's Los Angeles Auto Show, among them Kia, and luxury brands Audi and Genesis.
Kia's entry is the 2017 Soul Exclaim, which has improved horsepower and mileage over other Soul models. Both CarPlay and Android Auto will come standard with the vehicle's UVO3 dash interface, and buyers will be able to upgrade to an 8-inch touchscreen.
A price and launch date aren't available, but drivers can also get CarPlay on other 2017 models of the Soul.
Lastly, Genesis will have CarPlay and Android Auto on the 3.3T Sport trim of its G80 sedan. The car will arrive this spring, notably featuring a 9.2-inch touchscreen, one of the largest displays in any CarPlay-equipped vehicle.
